Concert with Yassir Chadly – July 21, 2001

During a break in his summer Septet touring schedule, Cuban composer and pianist Omar Sosa will offer a special concert with Moroccan vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Yassir Chadly:

Saturday, July 21 * 8:30 PM
at the Main Post Chapel in the Presidio

Mr. Chadly is featured on Omar’s current CD, “Prietos”. He will also participate in Omar’s next recording project, “Sentir”, scheduled for release in Spring 2002. Fernando Gonzalez writes in the July issue of “Down Beat” that the results of this collaboration “have a consistent musical coherence and emotional integrity”, where “the sum is greater than the parts”. Sosa’s world jazz “uses global sounds to tell his own personal story.”
